    Another message board I visit has a thread where you post what song lyric you think applies to what you are feeling and/or doing at the moment. I'll start off. Seeing as how the country is turning over a new leaf today, and no matter what you think about Obama, you have to agree that thinking positive is a good thing. So here's the lyric I'm feeling right now:

    Stay Positive by the Hold Steady

    Whoahoho

    I've got a lot of old friends
    That are getting back in touch
    It's a pretty good feeling,
    Yeah it feels pretty good

    I get a lot of double-takes
    When I'm coming round the corners
    And it's mostly pretty nice
    Yeah it's mostly pretty alright

    'Cause most kids give me credit
    For being down with it
    When it was back in the day
    Back when things were way different

    When the Youth of Today
    And the early 7 Seconds
    Taught me some of life's most valuable lessons

    There's gonna come a time
    When the scene'll seem less sunny
    It'll probably get druggy
    And the kids will seem too skinny

    There's gonna come a time
    Where she's gonna have to go
    With whoever's gonna get her the highest

    There's gonna come a time
    Where the true scene leaders
    Will forget where they differ
    And get big picture

    'Cause the kids at the shows
    They'll have kids of their own
    And the sing-along songs will be our scriptures

    Whoahoho
    We gotta stay positive
    Whoahoho
    We gotta stay positive
    Whoahoho
    We gotta stay positive
    Whoahoho
    We gotta stay positive

    When the chaperone crowned us the king and the queen
    I knew that we'd arrived at a unified scene
    And all those little lambs from my dreams,
    Well they were there too

    'Cause it's one thing to start it with a positive jam
    And it's another thing to see it on through
    And we couldn't have even done this,
    If it wasn't for you

    Whoahoho
    We gotta stay positive
    Whoahoho
    We gotta stay positive
    Whoahoho
    We gotta stay positive
    Whoahoho

    It's a pretty kickass song, so if you want to listen to it, here it is:

    We'll be fighting in the streets
    With our children at our feet
    And the morals that they worship will be gone
    And the men who spurred us on
    Sit in judgment of all wrong
    They decide and the shotgun sings the song

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday
    Then I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again

    The change, it had to come
    We knew it all along
    We were liberated from the fold, that's all
    And the world looks just the same
    And history ain't changed
    'Cause the banners, they were all flown in the last war

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday
    Then I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again
    No, no!

    I'll move myself and my family aside
    If we happen to be left half alive
    I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
    Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
    Do ya?

    Yeah!

    There's nothing in the streets
    Looks any different to me
    And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
    And the parting on the left
    Is now parting on the right
    And the beards have all grown longer overnight

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday
    Then I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again
    Don't get fooled again
    No, no!

    Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    Meet the new boss
    Same as the old boss

    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
    I could see the city light
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night
    He was something to observe
    Came in close, I heard a voice
    Standing stretching every nerve
    Had to listen, had no choice
    I did not believe the information
    I just had to trust imagination
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Son," he said "Grab your things,
    I've come to take you home."

    To keep in silence I resigned
    My friends would think I was a nut
    Turning water into wine
    Open doors would soon be shut
    So I went from day to day
    Though my life was in a rut
    'Till I thought of what I'd say
    Which connection I should cut
    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I walked right out of the machinery
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Hey," he said "Grab your things
    I've come to take you home."

    Yeah back home

    When illusion spin her net
    I'm never where I want to be
    And liberty she pirouette
    When I think that I am free
    Watched by empty silhouette
    Who close their eyes but still can see
    No one taught them etiquette
    I will show another me
    Today I don't need a replacement
    I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Hey," I said "You can keep my things,
    They've come to take me home."

    Is it much to admit I need
    A solid soul and the blood I bleed
    With a little girl, and by my spouse
    I only want a proper house

    I don't care for fancy things
    Or to take part in a precious race
    And children cry for the one who has
    A real big heart and a father's grace

    I don't mean to seem like I care about material things like a social status
    I just want four walls and adobe slabs for my girls
